Overview

This program brings to Georgia State University promising and leading faculty from underrepresented minority groups for short-term (1-2 week) visits.

In this way, the program will enhance ongoing facul

Additional Research Components, Roles and Responsibilities

To accomplish both goals, visiting scholars will participate in the intellectual life of Georgia State University through a host department; ideally some planned activities during their visit will also deliberately engage faculty and students from beyond the host department. Examples of on-site activities include giving guest lectures and seminars in academic courses, conducting workshops, delivering public lectures and interacting with students and faculty in formal and informal settings at the department, college and/or university levels, including through interdisciplinary centers. Host departments should envision ways of sustaining such interactions following the short-term visit.
